Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The titular question encourages readers to lift flaps in search of the sweetie pie in question. Is he or she "[i]n this chair?" On the flap is a chair seen from behind; readers will pretty easily see that "[i]t's a teddy bear!" even before they lift the flap-"But where's my sweetie pie?" Not behind the log with the frog, or in the house with the tiny mouse, alas. But...in this pocket, that contains a locket? With two successive lifts, readers reveal a foil mirror: "There you are! / Hello, sweetie pie!" Emberley's graphics are bright, simple and pleasing, and the text's combination of repetition and rhyme is just right. Unfortunately, the flaps, while easy for clumsy little fingers to manipulate, are also on the flimsy side-chances are good they'll wear out all too soon. (Board book. 1-3)
Publishers Weekly
There are plenty of cute surprises in this lift-the-flap book that takes readers on a search to answer the titular question. Beside the query, “In this chair?” flipping a chair-shaped flap reveals a teddy bear and the refrain, “But where’s my sweetie pie?” An owl, frog, butterfly, and mouse await behind later flaps, culminating in a mirrored surface under a heart-shaped locket on the final spread: “There you are! Hello, sweetie pie!” The gentle buildup and “starring you” finish will likely prompt rereading. Up to age 3. (Jan.)
